Analysis

Overview

The last living Nocturne Ludwig is an Earth Mage with immense burst potential. His incredibly high base Attack paired with Call of the Full Moon (S3) allow for him to be a perfect Hero for cleave compositions. While not often seen used in PvE content Ludwig can still hold his own in both Banshee and other areas. His kit also offers a combination of surprising tankiness, buff stealing, and a Stun on top of the already strong Defense Penetration.

Strengths

Colossal self shield and AoE Defense Penetration.

Call of the Full Moon (S3) is a powerful skill. Its first effect is granting itself 50% Defense Penetration while Ludwig has Invincibility. The skill becomes even more beneficial to Ludwig when he inflicts a Critical Hit because he gets a shield that is proportional to his total Attack for 2 turns on a 4 turn cooldown. This skill is what makes him a monster cleave Hero in PvP.

Buff Thief

One unique feature that Ludwig possess is the ability to steal buffs using Starlight (S3). Stealing buffs can be a fortunate skill to have because it allows you to steal buffs your team may otherwise not have while also helping to upkeep his own CR boost.
 

High Base Attack

There is only one other Hero in the game with higher attack than Ludwig. This is fantastic because it synergises well with his Shield and will ensure his skills hit even harder.

Weaknesses

Conditional Skills

All of Ludwig’s skills require a condition to be met. When the conditions are met each skill can be incredibly useful and potent. However, meeting these conditions consistently is where issue will repeatedly occur.

Buff Reliant

Both Starlight (S1) and Call of the Full Moon (S3) require that he has a buff to unlock their full potential. Keeping these buffs up consistently in sync with his skills will require frequent maintenance.

Not Self Sufficient

Due to Ludwig’s conditional skill effects and buff necessity he is heavily reliant on the team you pair him with in order to be consistent. Ideally you want someone who can buff frequently to ensure his Starlight (S1) is always providing its CR boost and someone who can also consistently assist in giving him Invincibility for the Defense Penetration on Call of the Full Moon (S3.)

Builds

Heavenfall: PvP

In this build the goal is to have Ludwig go last and nuke the enemy Heroes for immense damage. To do this you will need a strong cleave setup consisting of a few key types of Heroes. You will need an Invincibility buffer, typically two CR boosters, and generally at least an attack buff. As such, forming Ludwig into the best version of himself can be hard since what he requires is so specific when compared to other cleave Heroes, but when you meet these conditions his damage will soar.  

Generally the majority of his build should be focused into attack, crit, and crit damage substats. Speed is less important for him since you want the CR boosters to push him forward enough that he will still go before other enemy Heroes.
